QUIPS

Three memorable remarks from my husband.


1.  On this blog, for the "category" of posts about our offspring, he suggested "Ball bearings."
 
2.  When our daughter was about 10, she wanted to know why urine is always yellow.  My husband replied that urine is waste, so the good things our body needs from the food we eat isn't yellow, but other colors.  Like purple.  "So vitamins are purple?" our daughter wondered.  "Yep," he said.

3.  Years ago, when using our first movie camera, my husband mistakenly captured some scenes of the floor, including a row of legs.  Reviewing the film later, our older son pointed out, "Dad, this is nothing but feet."  My husband replied, "That's why they call it footage."  

And that, folks, is one reason I married him.  He can make up stuff faster than anyone I've ever met.

"Ball bearings" and "footage?!" I think your husband needs his own blog, or you can let him guest host once in a while! He's very quick witted, and sounds like a keeper!

This explains why lemon meringue pie is so bad for us.

Yet it doesn't explain why it is so yummy.

I will be borrowing your "footage" quip. That's why we don't let my husband take pictures. Does your husband have something for glove boxes? My husband also takes picture of those too.
